Analysts IDTechEx Research almost completely rewrote their report “Power Electronics for Electric Vehicles 2015-2025” (www.idtechex.com/power) this year and frequent updates take place, such is the pace of change. Part of the new scenario is the rapid electrification of conventional cars without them becoming strictly electric vehicles because they do not have an electric motor exclusively propelling them along some or all of the time. This signified the debate about 48V systems replacing 12V and 24V ones as much larger batteries are needed and compatible 48V components are arriving from multiple sources.
